How would I describe Prague? WOW! That’s all I really need to say. If you are looking for a cheap, but also beautiful city rich with history then you need to visit Prague. I think Prague can be done in a day if you want to add it to a trip, but also there is enough to do if you want to stay longer. Here are things to do and eat while you are in Prague 🙂
What to do-
- Go see Prague Castle
- Walk across Charles Bridge on your way to the Castle
- Check out the painters on the bridge
- Take a boat tour!
- See the John Lennon Wall
- Petrin Lookout Tower
Where to eat-
- Get a trdelnik plain or with ice-cream or chocolate (soooo good!)
- Strahov monastic brewery
- U Betlemkske Kaple
- On your way to the castle there is a cafe that overlooks the city of Prague. I didn’t catch the name, but it’s in the wall as you are walking up the steps to the castle. It is also cash only.
Beer is really good in Prague. I don’t even really like beer and I drank a lot of it here. And it’s even better because it’s cheap. They have a dark beer that is sweeter and worth a try and of course Pilsner!
What to do:
- Check out all the shops in Old Town
- Astronomical Clock
- Check out one (or two) of Prague’s many museums
I went to the Music Museum and it was pretty cool! They had so many instruments and how they have evolved over time. Music fans I would definitely recommend checking this out.
Where to eat:
- Cafe Louvre
- Sisters for open face sandwiches
- Gingerbread at Pernickuv Sen
Cafe Louvre is a pretty famous cafe in Prague where Einstein, Kafka, and Capek were said to visit. There was a line when I went, but it went pretty fast. I ordered the pancakes (shown below) and they were amazing! Someone told me to get a Turkish coffee, but I totally forgot about it. So, if you go please order it and tell me how it was 😉
Where to stay:
I stayed at Sophie’s Hostel which was only a fifteen minute walk from Old Town. They offer a five bed women’s dorm and they are like mini apartments! I didn’t realize when I got there that it would have a kitchen and a bathroom just for that dorm. I think this would be awesome if you are staying longer because you can make your own food. The rooms also do not have bunk beds, which is a plus.
Every night the hostel has a happy hour where beers are only 1 euro! The bar and reception are open 24 hours also. You can pay 6 euros for a breakfast buffet, traditional European breakfast and coffee, or you can pay more for a hot brunch along with the buffet.
Are you planning a trip to Prague? If not you should 😉
